it turns out that my fear of much earlier mornings was unfounded. the goose has woken up pleasant, dare i say happy. it occurred to me that a lack of the bug in the process may have been all that we needed from the beginning. i don’t even mind the groundhog day feeling of getting one up and out and then doing the same with the other. the added advantage is that i have had plenty of coffee before getting the bug up and am prepared for any and all questions he has to throw at me. the sad part is that as he gets older he isn’t as chatty in the morning. gone are the days of “mommy, what would happen if…..?” just when i figured that the best way to answer those questions was to just turn them around on him. this usually led to the response of “that’d be cool.”
the other side of this is that the goose gets home an hour before the bug from school. i told her that she is seeing him for maybe 3 hours a day now. maybe she could be kind….ok maybe civil…..what about not yell at him for those 3 hours.
stubby hubs hunk said that middle school may just be the turning point in their relationship.
i’m not holding my breath…..E
